ST. PETERSBURG — A woman was transported to Bayfront Medical Center early Friday after a city of St. Petersburg vehicle collided with her SUV near Williams Park, fire officials said.

The woman's beige Chevrolet Blazer was T-boned by the city vehicle, causing the sports utility vehicle to overturn, said Lt. Joel Granata of St. Petersburg Fire Rescue.

The collision happened just after 9:30 a.m. and blocked the intersection of Third Street at Second Avenue N, Granata said.

The woman, Joann Carrico, 74, of St. Petersburg, was in stable condition. Police issued the city employee a ticket for running a red light.

No further information was immediately available.
